A Good Western To End 1935 On
A good, sturdy, and quick little western for A.W. Hackel's Supreme Pictures. Directed by Robert N. Bradbury with stunts by Yakima Canutt (obviously). Johnny Mack Brown's last release for 1935 is quite good of kind. It's filmed almost completely outdoors on location, with the exception of the begginning and the Mine interiors, later on. Johnny Mack was fast becoming a matinee favorite and this picture didn't hurt. In late 1936, Republic Pictures contracted with Hackel of the remainder of the Brown western films through 1937. Movie crazy man/ villian Warner Richmnod shines in this too, as he always did. Enjoy. It's a rarity.
